Héctor Neris and Ryan Pressly to the rescue of Cristian Javier

Javier was replaced by his compatriot Héctor Neris at the beginning of the eighth inning. Neris began by walking a couple of walks to Aaron Hicks and pinch hitter DJ LeMahieus. However, he quickly recovered by taking out Joey Gallo and Aaron Judge to complete the inning.

Ryan Pressly was in charge of closing the match for the Houston Astros and thus completing the heroic deed of the team, retiring all three men in a row and also scoring his 15th save in 18 attempts.

As an important fact, it should be noted that the Houston Astros become the first team to shutout the Yankees since 1958 twice and this no-hit, no-run game becomes the 14th in franchise history.
